Conan the Barbarian
Conan is born during a bloody battle in the Hyborian age of swords and sorcery. While still a young boy, his entire village is slaughtered by the evil Khalar Zym (Stephen Lang), whose goal is to collect all the pieces of a powerful mask. Years later, when Conan has grown into a man (Jason Momoa), he seeks his revenge. Meanwhile, Khalar Zym and his sorceress daughter (Rose McGowan) are hunting for a "pureblood," Tamara (Rachel Nichols), which will help them complete a terrifying ritual. Can Conan find and stop the bad guy, and rescue the girl, before it's too late?
Conan the Barbarian Conan The Barbarian, directed by Marcus Nispel ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") starts with some stale dialogue, which is then delivered badly by all the actors. Its star Jason Momoa spends most of his time attempting what he must have thought was a steely gaze, but which comes across more like a self-conscious leer. The story is both lazy and ridiculous and the action sequences are clunky and incomprehensible, not to mention poorly paced, and the 3D effects are like flat images in a pop-up book.

That might be the worst of it, but it's also probably the most gruesomely violent movie of the year, with little reason for its extreme and horrifying violence. Last, though hardly least, is the movie's despicable treatment of women as props, and women and children as the targets of brutal violence.
